Day 3: Take a journey into Isabela Island’s dark history as a penal colony, as you visit “The Wall of Tears.” After breakfast, you will see where prisoners in the mid-20th century slaved to build this wall of heavy lava rock in harsh conditions. We will also visit the tortoise breeding center, a lava tunnel, and another flamingo lagoon.
After a good lunch at the hotel, the afternoon will offer you a chance to head to “Las Tintoreras,” an area famous for its calm, clear waters, where colonies of white-tipped reef sharks are known to rest. This is also a good spot to see penguins, sea lions, and the famous sea-going marine iguana. If you choose to snorkel, keep your eyes open for sharks and the rainbow of tropical fish.
